what seriously! Another article this time about how getty is fighting against traditional stock with their realistic portrayal of women in engineering. And guess what, their examples of "bad" stock photos are from thinkstock. So as well as being even more advertorial for brand getty paid for by my license money they are throwing our work under the bus to do it. I don't know how the bbc are getting away with this!

I have to admit, when I first started in 2007 I have taken some of those "unauthentic" stock photos and they still sell today!

I'm not as bothered by the lame uninspired, unoriginal article. I am more bothered that it is clearly just an advertisement for one of Getty's new products, a collection of "authentic" images.

How does the BBC get away with it?

Because the BBC is filled with arrogant  Aholes it's disgusting!

The BBC also use a lot of "free" images from Google and Geograph the lazy hounds

It also explains the weird email from Shutterstock last year requesting British content of ordinary British life.  They must have been quoting to supply too and missed the boat I bet Klein is milking that cow for all it's worth now
